COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter.
Still deep in the grip of Winter this sumptuous warming beer is sufficiently well hopped to provide balance, which can come in handy when there’s black ice around!

Ungstrup (29084) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2007. A deep red - almost brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly bitter finish.

On tap somwhere! Clear dark brown beer. Light semi dry palate. A little sourish malt, lightly toasted. Fruit in the undertone. Finishes dry, hoppy and bitter. Tasty if a bit too bitter.

harrisoni (13217) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2010
This is not my 7k rating, Alvinne Mano Negra is. Cask condition handpull at The County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. I haven’t had this in about 8 years, but i remember it being fantastic at The Mogul in Dover, so I was coming to the pub every day for a week hoping that the Available Soon sign would disappear and I could have this again. Black with ruby edges, lasting mid beige head. Some choc on the aroma, some dark fruits. Full in mouth, good juicy, malty balance in the mouth. God it’s brilliant, I love this. Choc and black cherry and a bit like a choc sponge in a glass. Fantastic and lives up to my long long memory of this great beer.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2011
Very dark brown. Not a very expressive aroma, but the palate shows more. Soft toffee, some dark malt bitterness. Light body. Lightly smoky finish.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2007
Very dark ruby beer with a medium sized, lasting off-white head. Malt, bread and toffee in the aroma, and a note of Munich malt. Rich and malty flavour with a bitter finish

Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise, London. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a soft, filmy white head. Perfumey, floral nose with some dark malts. Light sweet flavor, dark malts, some mild burnt wood, ripe citrus. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, some dry burnt wood and grass, toast, citrus rind. Interesting and decent mild.

imdownthepub (9962) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2010
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Dark brown, red with white head. Phew this is a tricky one to place, it is roasty, sweet and hoppy all at the same time, a cross over mild to bitter, but a very good one. The hops stand out with a grapefruit tartness and lemon peel and this is over a hint of charcoal and toast. A lovely beer.
